With the rising trend of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) in workplaces, companies are now faced with the challenge of securing their application and data from potential threats. Employees and contractors are using personal devices to access company applications, increasing the risk of unauthorized access and data breaches. To counter the risks of BYOD, companies are turning to CASB solutions, and one such solution that stands out is Forcepoint ONE CASB. In this blog post, we'll explore how to protect BYOD using Forcepoint ONE CASB and why it is the best solution for securing corporate SaaS applications.

Unify Cloud, Endpoint and BYOD Data Protection

Before we dive into the details of how to protect BYOD using Forcepoint ONE CASB, it's essential to understand the potential threats associated with BYOD. Personal devices do not typically have the same level of security features that corporate-owned devices have, making it easier for hackers and malicious actors to gain access to corporate SaaS application and data. Additionally, employees’ use of personal devices can lead to data breaches, data leakage, and unauthorized access to company applications.

To secure BYOD from potential risks, companies can use a CASB solution. Forcepoint ONE CASB is a powerful cloud access security broker that enables real-time visibility, control, and protection of applications and data in the cloud. It secures BYOD  with its patented Ajax-VM technology that enables companies to leverage the power of FONE reverse proxy to provide controlled access to corporate applications while blocking unauthorized access.

 

Forcepoint ONE CASB offers several benefits to companies that seek to secure BYOD access to corporate applications, including:

As companies continue to adopt BYOD and contractor policies, securing corporate applications remains a top priority. BYOD can pose significant risks to corporate data. To secure them and manage potential threats, companies need to adopt a robust CASB solution like Forcepoint ONE to provide the needed security measures to mitigate cyber risks and prevent data breaches.
